In recognition of National Stroke Awareness Month in May, the City of Palm Beach Gardens Fire Rescue wants the public to know the importance of recognizing the signs and symptoms of a stroke and acting F.A.S.T.
In 2015, Gardens Fire Rescue noted that residents waited an average of 112 minutes between patients exhibiting signs of a stroke and calling 9-1-1. Last year (2016) that number improved to 82 minutes. Our numbers are decreasing but we can do better! Don’t wait. If you or someone you know shows signs of a stroke, call 911 right away.
